Your first thought when looking through National Geographic: “I’d like to eat that.” Answering your plea: the area Rocklands locations, now serving wild boar sausage, snapping turtle chili and muskrat poppers. Deep-fried wildebeest can’t be far behind.
Things to do for March 10, 2011
Bocce, Muskrats and Mardi Gras Redux
The weekend is on a drug called the weekend.
Southern-Fried Happy Hour at Vidalia
The adult portion of New Orleans you just enjoyed has you re-appreciating all things Southern. Go with it, as this underground haunt serves up $3 bar snacks like pimento cheese, pork belly sliders and BBQ shrimp, along with $3.50 beers and half-price cocktails. The shrimp will rise again.
Vinoteca Looking for Bocce Competitors
You’ve doubled your morning jumping jacks. You’re cutting back on desserts. Yes, it’s nearly bocce season. Every Monday or Tuesday for eight weeks, over $4 Peroni bottles and food specials, you and your partner will demonstrate your touch on the outdoor court. Don’t forget to compensate for the wind.
Three Cocktails in One at Ping Pong
Sometimes, you’re plagued by indecision. Fortunately, so is the bar at Ping Pong Dim Sum, which is rolling out flights of three cocktails. Expect to imbibe Gin Lemon Rose, Bourbon and Mango and an Asian Manhattan. It’s a lot easier than the time you left the dealership with three cars.
Gallons of Norwegian Beer
Two ways to experience Norway right now: carve a fjord in your backyard. Or hit up this one-night Norwegian beer extravaganza with the cult brews of HaandBryggeriet and a special smoked salmon pizza. Among the choices: a chamomile spiced beer and a traditional Norwegian funeral ale. It’s killer.
Mardi Gras Redux at 18th Amendment
You could get used to this whole Fat Tuesday phenomenon. Like, every Tuesday. The Capitol Hill watering hole has a new NOLA-inspired menu by chef throwdown champ Teddy Folkman, and every Tuesday, they’ll have specials on everything from gumbo to fried alligator. Which we hear Teddy wrestles out back.
